Money: Jollibee to Buy Mang Inasal!

"The Jolly Bee is eating Mang Inasal chicken!"

Tony Tan Caktiong owned Jollibee Foods Corporation, the largest fast food chain in the Philippines announced the acquisition of the seven-year old fast food chain Mang Inasal! According to the disclosure, Jollibee will be buying 70% of the shares of Mang Inasal for a sum of 3 Billion pesos.

Mang Insasal, a relatively start up fast food chain has seen a rapid growth in the recent years. Since it started in 2003, Mang Inasal already boasts a total of 303 stores around the country, most of which are franchises. Recent financial reports shows that the young company is already earning a revenue totaling to 3.8 Billion pesos.

Mang Inasal has been known for its delicious roasted chicken and "unlimited rice". They also sell products that are relatively cheaper compared to other established fast food chain. These and other key marketing strategies seems to have boosted the company's growth.

Jollibee on the other hand has been well established with 1,578 stores in the country and 375 abroad.

Public Reactions

The acquisition brought mixed reactions from the public. Some comments were concerned about the policy merge. Some are worried that the popular "unlimited rice" might be removed. Some, however,  praised Jollibee for their move. Others commented that this merger will bring Mang Inasal in the table of OFWs abroad.

How about you? What is your reaction?

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
